Lady Antebellum Tap Keith Apicary for Free-Spirited ‘Freestyle’ Video
The clip features comedian and dancer Nathan Barnatt as his alter ego, Keith Apicary, whose, uh ... very free-spirited dance moves steal the show. Apicary busts a move in some of the Big Apple's most familiar locations, with hilarious results.
The plot of the video focuses on his determination to see Lady Antebellum live in person, and to get them to sign his CD cover. "They're the best band inside the planet right now," he gushes to a cab driver. "Mostly songs about love and horses ... brings you back to nature."
Apicary comes up short of meeting his heroes until he cleverly disguises himself in a cowboy hat and Lady A shirt to get past security. Dragged away when he storms the stage to perform his unique moves, he gets the last laugh when Charles Kelley personally invites him backstage, where the hit-making trio give him the long-sought-after signatures and even a picture with them.
The stage-crashing scene was filmed at a Lady A gig at the Gramercy Theatre in Manhattan earlier this year, with the band members laughing as Apicary is comically hauled away.
'Freestyle' is the second single from the trio's most recent album, '747,' which they just released in September. The album's first single, 'Bartender,' reached No. 1 on Billboard's Country Airplay chart in September.
